To love the Moon !

To love the Moon !

A friend told me about an adventure they had dancing in the moonlight my imagination got going and the poem below was the result.


Per amore la Luna -to love the moon ( Ode to Laluna )

Sweltering in the midnight haze

Drifting rain burst from the clouds,

Clear and fresh, through the darkness,

Sweet relief, from summers press .


Through the window, she spies the green-grass

As the rain comes falling down

Dazedly she thinks of dancing,

Dancing naked neath the moon.


Proudly naked like a newborn

She stepped into enfolding darkness,

Darkness warm upon her skin

Enlightened by moons, silver sheen.


Black hair floating all about her

A gossamer and tangled skein.

Burnished silver by the moonbeams

Enchanted sight, though sight unseen.


Midnight rain and summer breezes

touch her face, her arms, her flesh

Rills of sweet, new-water

Flowing like a Lovers sweet-caress.


Limbs made graceful by the moonlight

Eyes reflecting stars above

head uplifted, gently swaying

With the trees and midnight breeze.


To see her there is blissful torture to the man who’s passing by

While she continues gaily dancing

Unaware he sees her grace.

Eyes fixated, mind absorbed, her naked body, her smiling face.


In the years to come he will see her

Proudly naked neath the moon

Forever young and all beguiling

a fleeting moment , gone to soon.

Until about a month ago I hadn’t written any poetry for years but reading poetry is one of my secret joys.

For some reason a month or so ago (I won’t go into the details) I started writing poetry again.

Here are the some of the results of my recent labours; my poetry muscles are a bit rusty so excuse these efforts if they don’t meet your expectations.



I hope that you enjoy the poetry

It’s written here for all to see

What I can’t say, in any better way.


The images from Hubble were remarkable and having seen one particular image I was inspired to write the following.


Star within the stars

Star within the stars

In the Heavens ( Hubbles eye)

Beyond the veil of winter cloud

An unblinking eye sees, through Infinity.

A blazing star within the stars.


Written upon the occasion of a friend who really loves smoking trying to give up cigarettes even though they were going through some stressful times, failing, setting a new day for giving up then failing again.

No Smoking Sign

Life without cigarettes?

Be yourself, smile, be happy, and don’t worry about the cigarettes

Time will tell if your parting is to be today or never.

Who can say, what’s yet to come

What sweet caress or lovers touch?

Take your joy where you find it,

Enjoy your life and suck it dry.


To free yourself from paper chains

A worthy challenge, a heroes test

But do it when your arm is strong,

When you’re at peace, your mind at rest.
